Whose Man Is Knowland?

Binkley, Wilfred
October 1954
New Republic;10/11/54, Vol. 131 Issue 15, p13
This article focuses on the political conduct of Senator William Knowland in the United States. To explain Knowland's conduct one must look at the very nature of the American party system. His actions are conditioned by an intra-party struggle for control of the Republican Party in California with no less a figure than the Vice President of the United States. The meteoric rise of the Vice President is naturally a challenge to the Majority Floor Leader of the Senate. To the consternation of the Knowland faction this incredible youth is being hailed as a veritable Crown Prince ready for the succession in two short years if only the President wearies of the great office.
